C.  Costs, Benefits, and Effectiveness:

Program Scope: In FY 1984, 98 Projects With Industry programs were sup-
ported to train and place in employment more than 13,000 handicapped
individuals earning in excess of $70 million in wages from private
sector employment.

Effectiveness: An assessment of the program completed in April 1983
(E.I) found that (1) PWI projects appear generally successful in
meeting the program's goal of developing private sector linkages
to assist disabled persons in achieving competitive employment,
though quantitative information to verify the performance of specific
projects is limited, and (2) no single type of organization is more
successful than others in accomplishing PWI goals. Rather, the
diversity of organizations operating PWIs and the flexibility of
projects in providing services appear to be important factors in the
PWI program's overall effectiveness.

D.  Plans for Program Improvement and Recommendation for Legislation;
None.
